As I have said many times, I love a good inspirational Christian movie. And once again, I have had an opportunity to review an amazing one. I was recently sent "This is Our Time" presented by Pure Flix. In this movie, 5 friends graduate college with their dreams ahead of them, however it is not always what is in Gods plan. This movie releases on DVD and Blu-Ray on Tuesday, April 16, 2013. It will be available nationwide at Family Christian Stores and most Christian online and brick-and-mortar retail stores nationwide.
About This Is Our Time
The movie tells the interwoven stories of Luke (T.J. Dalrymple) and Alé (Erin Bethea), who marry right after school and move to India to serve as missionaries for Embrace A Village, a ministry that cares for those afflicted with leprosy and their families; aspiring financier Catherine (Kate Cobb), who joins a prestigious financial institution determined to make an impact on corporate America; Ryder (Matthew Florida), who lands an impressive job in social media and can’t wait to use the powerful medium for a greater good; and Ethan (Shawn-Caulin Young,) seemingly the odd man out, who struggles to find his God-given-purpose and feels sidelined by God.
“What they all come to learn is that it never really was their time,” Director Lisa Arnold said. “It always was, always is, God’s time.”

What an amazing film. The story of the five friends really hits home with me and hubby. As they embark on their lives, they go in different directions. Only Ethan, who did not get into graduate school seems to be floundering and wondering why his dream is not going anywhere. However, as tragedy hits, they are all faced with what they want vs. what God has planned for them. Dreams break, tragedy hits but God is always there and in His perfect timing, they see what He has in store for them.
This movie also stars Bruce Marchiano, a well known Christian actor who has portrayed Jesus in numerous films. In this movie, he plays their professor from college, a wise Godly man who really knows how to relate with his students. He gives Ethan some advice on why God has him where he is right now, and he serves a purpose although he has not figured it out yet. This hit home with Hubby as he has been out of work and now sees that God may not want him traveling in his industry, but has denied him employment since He wants hubby right here.
Our church had the honor of Bruce speaking about a month ago to our congregation. I will say, the man is just as gracious, polite and Godly as he appears on this film.
